Daw Khin Kyi Mausoleum

Memorial in Yangon

Here lies Aung San’s widow and Aung San Suu Kyi's mother Daw Khin Kyi. Her funeral in 1989 was attended by more than 100,000 and was a galvanising moment in the country's early struggles to unseat the military government.

The mausoleum is the third closest to Shwedagon Paya in the quartet of mausoleums on this road. U Kyaw Min, the architect of the mausoleum, also designed the neighbouring one for Thakin Kodaw Hmaing.
